Red-throated Piping Guan

Bolivia November 2001

  • Bolivia has the largest list of any land-locked country in the world – currently over 1370 species – and 20 species endemic to Bolivia, but this figure is misleading because another 100-plus species are confined to a variety of rather limited ecosystems in adjacent remote parts of Peru and Brazil, species that may not be seen readily by birders elsewhere...Jan Vermeulen reports (A superbly detailed report...but big!)

Bolivia 24 September - 25 October 2000

  • A summary of John van der Woude's report of his independent birding trip to this landlocked but highly varied country.
